Kam Chueh veteran needs new Recs


I'm going back to Kam Chueh tonight and am wondering if there's anything spectacular I may not have tried. I visit China frequently and I can eat about anything though I don't go out of my way to get something for the sake of saying I've had it, after having Ox penis, scorpion and duck heads I've got that base covered. Any recs not on the menu? Below are some of the dishes I've had before:

Lobster cantonese style, (kam chueh's raison d’être)
Dungeness Crab
Razor Clams
Shrimp (not sure which)
Steamed Sea Bass
Fried Rice, baby snow pea leaves (heart)

Anyone know if they've got good fish heads? Also do they serve yellow fish and if so is it real yellow fish or just some fish they call yellow fish. How are the soft shell crabs?

  1. I'm a fan of their alaskan king crab done two ways - one half with garlic on a thick ribbon noodle, and one half with ginger and scallion. If they don't have king crab, I usually have lobster with ginger and scallion and shrimp with garlic and thick ribbon noodles. I am so addicted that I don't try much else. Their pea shoots can be a little heavy, but go well with the seafood.
